Maybe, just maybe...since they had these backups in their back pocket...maybe they will rotate Hold Me and Brown Eyes in and out of the set from night to night?

I think playing a corporate gig as a soft opener for a tour is a tough spot to be in. If they played Brown Eyes in Chicago, I bet half the place went to the bathroom and they got cold feet as a result.

Got it, thanks. I wanted Over My Head but I must say not at the expense of Hold Me.

Wishful thinking. But when has this band ever done anything like that? The set list is usually set in stone, except for when they drop a song. I'm so happy Stand Back is gone for now. It's alright, it alright!

yeah I'm really surprised they included Over My Head. And Sisters of the Moon really didn't need to return after last year. Ugh.

Over My Head is a beautiful studio track...one of my fav. Christine songs. But live...never worked great. It might be interesting if they 'rock' it up like they did on the Live 1980 album.

Gypsy is okay live however, like Dreams, it lacks the studio magic that makes it so special on the album.

I thought Gypsy was great last tour. It got revived with new energy somehow. I'm glad it's in. But man was I looking forward to Hold Me

Hold Me was a major hit...Like #4 or something. Leaving it out is a big mistake.

Playing Over My Head the way they did back in the 70's (as represented on the Live album) is the only way that the song will be an interesting/good choice. The Dance DVD version (which, if this is correct, is likely what we will get), was a complete snoozefest.

Gypsy could have (and should have IMO) stayed off for this tour. Stevie is unable or unwilling to hit so many of the high notes that make the song tolerable live. I completely agree that like Dreams, this one just never translates very well to the stage. The Mirage video version is interesting and includes some incredible playing by Buckingham at the end, and I really liked the version on the Dance DVD....but other than that, blah!
